City of Dallas taking nominations to first Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors
DALLAS — The City of Dallas is seeking nominations to its inaugural economic development corporation board of directors.
The board will oversee the City of Dallas Economic Development Corporation, which was approved by City Council in January 2022 to support business development and serve as a public developer within the City of Dallas.
“The Corporation will play an integral part in growing the Dallas business community, and we need passionate and qualified people at the helm,” said Councilmember Tennell Atkins, Chairman of the City’s Economic Development Committee.
The board will be made up of 15 members and represent a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, geographies and areas of expertise with the highest level of integrity and dedication to Dallas.
Initial directors will serve a term of up to four years and are eligible for reappointment for three-year terms. No director can serve for more than eight consecutive years.
Directors do not receive a salary or compensation for their services, but they are entitled to reimbursement for reasonable expenses incurred during official duties as a director. Directors may be subject to a background check prior to confirmation.
